Ransomware year BeWare! you may be the next target

The Covid pandemic has made new difficulties for organizations as they adjust to a working model where telecommuting has become the ‘new ordinary’. Organizations are speeding up
their digital transformation, and network safety is currently a significant concern. The
reputational, functional, lawful, and consistent suggestions could be impressive if online
protection chances are disregarded.

Different Organizations have changed under pandemic-initiated work from home
policy, cybersecurity specialists stressed that cybercriminals would exploit loosened up security
firewalls, and if that occurred, the consequence could result in enormous cyber attacks.
During the growing Covid phase, Phishing campaigns concerning Covid testing, antibodies, and
vaccines were increased exponentially. After this phase, a series of ransomware attacks were
initiated by cybercriminals which affected almost 51% of the world’s organizations according to a report by Sophos.

73% of these attacks were successful and increasingly scrambled the information from those organizations. These attacks spread so fast that even healthcare was not able to be protected
and their MRI and X-ray machines were hacked.
And these attacks have risen so enormously that they have ransomed about $75 Million,
affecting small to middle-sized businesses.

The Ultimate Goal

The main purpose of these cyber attacks is to gain money and destroy the systems of the victim organization. The cybercriminals take all the money out of their accounts and also stole the
data of their user and sell it to other cybercriminals to use those credentials for the sake of
more attacks.

Hackers additionally use credential stuffing methods to access workers’ qualifications and the taken information is then offered to other cybercriminals. One of the results is a genuine
disturbance to organizations that depend intensely on videoconferencing stages. Credentials
stuffing is a type of cyber attack whereby programmers use already taken mixes of a username
and secret key to access different records. This situation has created challenges for small and middle-sized organizations and Businesses.

Now, the question is: Are these groups are prepared to deal with these attacks, and
are they going to come up with some solutions?
Our cybersecurity specialists are continuously working on these problems and sorted out most
of them but a problem has not been solved completely.

Most people aren’t aware thinking can be addictive. When we’re not actively engaging in the world around us, thinking can give us a feeling of importance and significance. If we’re not thinking about ourselves and our lives, who else will? If our problems weren’t important enough to be constantly thinking about – what would that say about us? About our lives?

When the thoughts are positive, it’s not such a bad thing. But when the thinking is constantly negative, the impact can be detrimental. To a person’s self-esteem, how they experience the world and their life in general. Negative people are hard to be around – meaning many people avoid them. The only people who will hang out with them are other negative people. But even negative people become tired of other negative people’s company. Leaving negative people to often feel isolated and sometimes even resentful of the world they live in. Living in a never-ending cycle of pessimism, loneliness, disappointment, and confusion as to why they’re not fitting in.

To help you gain a better understanding of your own thinking, and how to improve it, here are few traits of positive and negative thinkers:

1. Adventure vs Certainty

Negative thinkers fear change. Any deviation from their plan causes them to get stressed. A feeling they avoid at all costs. They like having the certainty of familiarity. They find their comfort zone very comfortable, happy to stay there to avoid the pain of change. Unfortunately, this limits them on so many different levels. Not only do they not grow, learn and develop as an individual, but they do not get to experience much of the beauty this world has to offer.

Positive people tend to look at life as one big adventure. They like new experiences and live by the motto ‘variety is the spice of life. They like to push themselves out of their comfort zone and focus on the pleasure gained from doing something different rather than the pain. They view change as an opportunity to grow rather than a loss of control.

2. Celebrate Strengths vs Expose Weaknesses

Positive people appreciate and celebrate the strengths and successes of other people. They can do this because they are positive about their own identity and value. They focus on their own strengths and accept their weaknesses – realizing they’re not perfect and there’s no point in beating themselves up about it. Positive people don’t believe in destiny. They take control of their lives and make things happen. They set goals and take action to achieve them. They are the CEO of their life.
